You may remember last week I was working on some lunch bags for a class in the Autumn.
It took this many prototypes to decide on just the right size and proportions!
And when I did there was no stopping me!
There are 2 shapes here: An easier construction ...
...and a slightly more involved, boxy construction:
I played around a bit with handles and closures and decided the snap poppers were the best.
You can also see I experimented with different fabrics, oilcloth, linen, denim, deco weight. And to make them 'cool bag' like, I used Insul Bright Heat Resistant Wadding on the inside.
Oilcloth definitely adds a level of difficulty to the construction and I used wipeable fabrics for the lining, which also requires some patience!
|Recycled machine washable shower curtains are great here!|
But mainly I had lots of fun playing around with some of my favourite free motion sketching!
This will be a Saturday workshop in the Autumn term, and I'm hoping the ladies who come will enjoy making these as much as I did!
